2017 home owner grant threshold increased to $1.6 million

In 2017 the home owner grant threshold of assessed or partitioned value is $1.6 million (from $1.2 million in 2016). The grant is reduced by $5.00 for each $1,000.00 above the threshold.

  • The basic grant is eliminated when the assessed or partitioned value reaches $1.714 million
  • The additional grant is eliminated when the assessed or partitioned value reaches $1.769 million

 If you qualify for the seniors or other additional grant, but the grant amount has been reduced or eliminated due to the $1.6 million threshold, you may still be eligible for the low income grant supplement .

If you have concerns about the threshold change, please contact the Province of BC's Home Owner Grant Administration Branch:
